|Village Ice Cream|
|Busy on a cold windy day!|
When we decided to visit Calgary again, we knew that we would have to try to fit in a few visits to Village Ice Cream again. This time around we knew that even though they sell their ice cream by the scoop, we could ask to have multiple flavors scooped to make up one scoop.
If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I’m a hot fudge addict! I’ll get hot fudge no matter the whether and anywhere I can get it. So imagine how excited I was to visit Village Ice Cream on this trip and to find out they had home made hot fudge! Unlike at places such as Marble Slab Creamery or Dairy Queen, their hot fudge wasn't thick and gloopy, and they give me a generous ladle full of it! It caressed every morsel of ice cream, was just the perfect amount for two scoops of ice cream, and didn’t overwhelm any of the flavors I tried it with including vanilla bean, salted caramel, chocolate or Phil and Sebastian’s coffee. I even sampled their oaxacan chili chocolate ice cream which was made with coconut milk, making it vegan friendly, was no less tasty, rich and creamy than their regular offerings.

So do yourself a favor and hit Village Ice Cream next time you’re in Calgary, regardless the weather, and bring yourself back a pint if you're driving! They will be there and they’re open late, a real bonus if you’re staying in downtown Calgary. I can’t wait for my next visit as I hear they will be adding sundaes to the menu shortly! I only wish we could have a location in Edmonton, but then again, I’d be really really fat, broke and fighting a serious hot fudge addiction if they did… So maybe it’s best enjoyed whenever I can manage to visit Calgary, but I'll be yearning for Village Ice Cream every time I eat a hot fudge sundae here, knowing it just isn't quite as good as Village Ice Cream.
